Forgiven by Jana Oliver

The days are growing darker for 17-year-old demon trapper Riley Blackthorne. With her father’s reanimated body back safely, Beck barely speaking to her because of her tryst with a hunky fallen angel and a deal freshly made with Lucifer, she has enough on her hands to last a normal teenage lifetime. Though she bargained with Heaven to save his life, her ex-boyfriend Simon has told the Vatican’s elite team of demon hunters that she’s working with Hell. So now she’s on the run, at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list.

But it’s becoming clear that this is bigger than either Riley or Beck, and rapidly getting out of control. Someone's tampering with Atlanta's Holy Water, and it’s on Riley to figure out who. On top of that, there’s something wrong with the demons; they’re working together—and refusing to die. The trappers and hunters are doing their best, but civilians are falling in harm’s way.

Caught between her bargain with Heaven and her promise to Lucifer, Riley fears the final war is coming—and it may be closer than anyone thinks…

The first picture in this post is the US cover! As Jana so nicely pointed out, the UK cover is different and keeps the same model throughout the series. I really love our UK copies of this series because they're so nicely finished and have a lovely velvety feel to them. I also have the US versions of this series so I think I get the best of both worlds. Which do you all prefer?!


  1. I'm hoping you'll love it! I do, but then I'm a bit biasds (winks).

    One tiny little note -- the cover you show is the US edition, not the UK version which continues the tradition of having the gorgeous Elizabeth May as the cover model for Riley. This time around both editions have the same title as compared to the past. Confusing, I know!


  2. "Forgiven by Jana Oliver" sounds like a absolutely good read. I've been seeing this series a lot this year and its been getting very good reviews as well. I'm dying to get a copy of the first books myself. I just love the book cover, both the US and UK versions, but I love the bottom book cover the most :) Great WOW pick.
